Bottle at home (bb 19.05.24). Pours black without a head. Aroma of bourbon, alcohol, dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, liquorice. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter, full mouthfeel, but less creamy than expected, almost no carbonation, warming alcohol after. Very nice.

Konsystencja starego oleju silnikowego i mocny zapach kawy i czekolady przy nalewaniu zapowiadał, że będzie się działo. Jedynym zawodem jest piana, bo prawie jej nie było, chociaż jest to dla mnie tak mało istotna wada, że zupełnie nie zwracam na nią uwagi. Aromat powala! Gorzka czekolada, kawa, Bourbon, orzechy włoskie, palony karmel. Na drugim planie przebija się wanilia, rodzynki i figi. W smaku podobnie. Gęste, wyklejające, bardzo pełne. Wspaniała gorzka czekolada, sporo wysokogatunkowej kawy, Bourbona. Alkohol trochę się przebija, ale w żaden sposób to nie przeszkadza w odbiorze tego wspaniałego piwa. Piwo zrobiło na mnie ogromne wrażenie!

Bottle (undated) at Brew Dog Sodermalm, 11/29/16.
Very nice appearance, with some clarity visible on the maroon/burgundy-tinted edges. Dark mahogany body and a large, tan head atop showing strong retention.
The nose is a good mix of fairly strong, but not obnoxiously-so, bourbon and wood with plentiful roast, fudge and caramel, as one would expect. Seems to be quite sweet, but again, not nearly to the point of being put-off. Alcohol-wise, it’s there, of course, but isn’t intense or burning. There is a bit of strong ester, almost banana-like, on the very end, but this very likely could come from the bourbon just as much as it could from the yeast. Overall, a rich, rather intense nose that doesn’t quite go over-the-top.
In the mouth, it’s thick, though not syrupy, with an almost granular quality to it. Tons of rich caramel and fudge with a slight espresso hint, transitioning quickly to a more spicy, liquor-like bourbon character. Low carbonation but ample and mostly engaging for what’s there. Alcohol nicely folded in to the rich layers of bourbon, caramel, fudge and roast. Fair acidity on the end helps with balance, as well. Nice stuff, nothing really stood out to me, but it’s pretty under control for its size and richness.

Bottle at home. Pours black with a small tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, liquorice, slight bourbon. Taste is dark chocolate, molasses, slight coffee, roasty, ripened plum, light carbination. Lovely stuff.

Bullit (4686) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle at Brewdog Dog House. Black coloured with thin brown lacings. Nose is roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon, coffee, some sweetness. Flavour is roasted malts, bourbon, wood, coffee and chocolate, bit of wood. Fairly alcoholic.

DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle on X-mas. Sharp aroma of licorice, slightly charred plastic and burnt coffee. Any bourbon scent is very hidden. The first sip reveals notes of oxidation along with dark chocolate and a heck of a lot more alcohol than the nose suggests. Again, the bourbon notes barely emerge. Very smooth mouthfeel, which sadly is the beer’s best attribute. This one hardly ranks among the top 50 imperial stouts in my book.

Torrefacto (1755) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2016
Negro opaco y espuma beis oscuro. Aromas de chocolate, cacao, vainilla, mermelada de fruto negro, café, licor. Cuerpo denso sedoso con sabor como en aroma con final de amargor de chocolate negro y licor.

Scotty001 (573) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Poured deep dark brown with a disappearing beige head. Aroma of sweet meaty malt and dark fruit. Full body, flavour is fudge, caramel malt, dark fruit and dark chocolate.

Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Słodki, bardzo czekoladowy stout z wyraźnym bourbonem, delikatną wanilią. Dużo aloholu.

ALIBALI (2482) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2016
Mal wieder verweist MIKKELLER viele Mitbrauer auf ihre Plätze. Genau zum richtigen Zeitpunkt gebottled,würd ich sagen. Wirklich elegante Aromen von Bourbonvanille, Kirschen und einem Hauch Holz besäuseln die Duftempfänger. Spitze. Nur das Auge ist zuerst überrascht, deutet doch alles auf reinrassiges Öl hin. KOMPLETT ohne Kohlensäure und demzufolge natürlich auch Schaum, mutet es beeruntypisch an. Egal, das passt 🙂. Dann FEUERWERK der Likörsorte. Zutiefst alkoholisch, schwerst dunkelröstig, fast ein bisschen roggig und über alle Maßen Lakritzbomber. Als man den Trunk schon fast abgehakt hatte, driftete er unerwartet extrem aromatisch ins LICORICE LAND. WOOOWW. Schweres Gefährt. Wir brauchten für unsere 0,33l Flasche über 2 Stunden. Jeder Nipper beschäftigte einen mehrere Minuten. Hot & Wonderlandstuff. 15€...eigentlich.5€...aus HH. Eine weitere wird in frühestens 2 Jahren geköpft ✨ . The MILES AHEAD Beer.
